Denise Dubarbier’s love for greyhounds started in the summer of 1997 when she adopted her first greyhound Jake.
Inspired by Jake, Denise began volunteering at a local greyhound rehoming centre. A few years later, she started a career working with greyhounds that lasted nearly 20 years.
This book of poems chronicles the journey that started with Jake and brings us to the present day with Denise’s current greyhound Annie. Along the way, we meet the people and the hounds who have inspired Denise’s poems and share the laughter and the tears that each of them has brought to her life.
If you already have a greyhound in your life, you will know what wonderful dogs they are. If you don’t then hopefully these poems will encourage you to start your own journey with this fabulous breed and find out what it is to know the love of a greyhound.
All proceeds from the sale of this book will be used to support helping greyhounds and other dogs in care at Rain Rescue.
